Everything Leads To The Blogosphere

futuristic eyeThis weekend, my oldest son invited his girlfriend and a couple of friends over to spend the weekend. I had 5 teenagers and a toddler all weekend. All. Weekend.

Actually, I must say that my son and his friends are really good kids. I must say it because they read this blog from time to time.

Seriously, they are polite and helpful. They helped my put away $300 worth of groceries. Directly from the grocery bag into their stomachs! I think one of them may not have even removed the wrapper from the…well, I don’t really know what it was, because it was gone that quickly and he ATE THE WRAPPER! Then he said thanks.

They are awesome about letting the toddler hang out with them. And that is a blessing, since I spent most of the weekend cooking, cooking, cooking, washing dishes, cooking and washing dishes.

I have totally digressed though. I had a story I wanted to tell! I started by saying that the oldest had friends over. One of said friends brought over some of his video games. My second son was playing one of the games and was literally stuck at a door on a certain level. So, the friend explained what my son had to do. Of course, it’s totally obvious where my mind went.

Son: “It’s stuck”

Friend: “Push it”

Son: “Oh, I was pulling”

Friend: “No, you have to push it”

Son: “No wonder it was stuck. I was pulling it instead of pushing it!”

Friend: “That’s what she said”

Which is, of course, when I thought of Moooooog over at Midget Man of Steel. I think I need to spend more time in the real world.

  • Oh Nicky! I see what you mean! I really see what you mean! They helped you unpack $300 worth of groceries, and then they ate $700 worth of groceries. I get the picture! Plus, they are fun, but uh, can they all go home now? LOL. Love it!

    It’s funny I think of Mooooog when things like that are said too.

    As for your weekend…. That’s everyday in my house.

  • Linda, I knew you would understand! I absolutely adore them all and I do love it when my basement is wall-to-wall kids and I can hear the toddler giggling and the teens laughing and roughhousing, but I must admit the silence when they all leave is…golden 🙂

  • I didn’t realize that I still had any video game geek left in me from my younger days, until now. All I keep thinking is, did he get through the door?

  • Jen, thank you! It’s good to know I’m not the only one 🙂

    Ratty, he not only made it through the door but he also completed all the levels and beat the final bad guy 🙂

  • I always think of Rod/Moog whenever there’s a “Thats What She Said” moment in time! Actually, I also think of him when something disgusting happens.

    Im glad the 5 teenagers and toddler in tow were well behaved for you.

  • My wife and I still laugh about the night we bought our son’s hockey team 100 wings. She put the tray down and was immediately swarmed by hungry kids. Food went everywhere, and in less than 30 seconds, all the wings were gone. We’d way underestimated the appetites of teenage boys.

  • Meleah – The kids really were great, even if they did eat enough to bankrupt a small country! Mooooog kills me and it’s so comforting to know I’m not the only one who thinks of him at those moments….maybe we need a support group?

    MikeWJ – I know exactly what you mean! I thought I hadn’t underestimated their appetites with 2 pounds of tortellini, 60 meatballs and 2 heads of brocoli, followed by a large bag of tortilla chips with salsa. An hour later, they were rummaging through the pantry!

  • I would have called out “That’s What She Said!”

  • Wow Nicky, isn’t it amazing how much you end up spending at the grocery store? And it never lasts long and within 3 days, the kids are complaining there is nothing to eat, duh.

    Of course you can never go wrong thou, if you stock up on lots of CHEESE 🙂

  • Katherine, I think I was caught off guard by it, because I almost said “Hey you read Mental Poo too?”. I think at that point, I would have lost my unofficial “coolest mom ever” title!

    MOB, I don’t even think it lasted 3 days! I had grated some mozarella into a bowl for them to sprinkle on their pasta. When the pasta was gone, they ate the mozarella straight out of the bowl!

    What do you mean “if you stock up on lots of cheese”?
